This is exactly what happened to Carlton Blues AFLW star Tayla Harris when Channel 7 uploaded an incredible shot of Harris kicking during her side’s final round match against the Western Bulldogs.

The photo attracted countless “inappropriate and offensive” comments towards Harris, so much that Channel 7 decided to remove the picture. 

But it was this decision that sparked even more controversy with fans of the game and stars around the country arguing it sent the wrong message to the haters.

Channel 7 has since reinstated the picture at 11.22pm with an apology and their post has nothing but praise for the star:
